Virginia fans chant ‘ACC’ during baseball super regional

(John McDonnell/The Washington Post)

The Maryland men’s basketball team was on the wrong end of a whole bunch of mocking “A-C-C” chants this season. There was one at N.C. State, one at Duke, and one at Virginia, just off the top of one’s head. Of course, some Terps fans got revenge with a “Big Ten” chant after a late-season win over the Cavaliers.

All that said, you figured the conference-name-chanting time was about done when the basketball season was finished. But then the Terps baseball team got hot, and shockingly stormed into the super regional round, and surprised Virginia in the first game of the best-of-three series, and suddenly there were serious stakes when the Terps faced Virginia in the deciding game Monday night.

And when the Cavs recorded a blowout win, yup, there were those “A-C-C” chants again.




Heck, Allen Groves — Virginia’s associate vice president and university dean of students — even got in on the action with this tweet, which he apparently later deleted.

Of course, while this was Maryland’s last-ever sporting event as an ACC member, it probably will not be the last-ever time opposing fans chant about the Atlantic Coast Conference. In fact, every time Maryland loses to an ACC member for the rest of recorded history, opposing fans will begin that chant. Maybe we should stop posting about it at some point.


 Oh, and if you’re partial to the #OmaHoos, there was also this, after the win.
